Please note: this course is only taught in Dutch. If you want to apply for this course, a good command of Dutch language is required (NT2, level 2).
The part-time Fine Art & Design Teacher Training major offers one of three options:
– Four-year part-time programme
Entry requirements are a secondary school certificate, college diploma or bachelor’s degree, or a pass for the 21+ admission examination. During your part-time study, you will develop your visual and artistic abilities; will learn didactics, teaching skills and will attain a sound theoretical basis. You will work in professional practice and will attend classes on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evening, and all day Friday.
– Two-year lateral entry programme
You have completed an accredited art course. During your study programme, you will develop your didactic and teaching skills. Classes are on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and all day Friday.
Should you not have teaching qualifications yet, you do not need to pay for tuition fees for a second bachelor.
– Teacher training programme for secondary school education
You have a teaching qualification for secondary school education (in Dutch: ‘tweedegraads diploma’) in drawing, handcrafts and/or textiles, and you also teach. You would like to expand your field of work and your knowledge. In this study programme, you can work with digital media and digital media education, contemporary art theory, cultural and art education and visual projects, in which the emphasis lies on conceptualisation and interdisciplinary art forms.
Should you have gained a teaching qualification for secondary school education after June 1991, you will have to pay tuition fees. However, in consultation with your employer, you may be eligible for a teacher’s scholarship. For the conditions see DUO – IB-Groep.
After graduating, you will be able to work full-time or part-time as a cultural advisor, a teacher of arts, a teacher at a museum, an educational curator, an entrepreneur in art education or a developer of educational products.
